The Hop Concept Tropical & Juicy

What the brewers say

“Aromas of floral citrus and mango dominate. The flavor leads with a burst of bright papaya, pineapple, and tangerine and finishes with hints of spice from the hops and a clean, sweet malt undertone.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Well-blended citrus and tropical fruit, orange/lemon/pineapple. Pine character is strong in the nose. Well-balanced between light toasty malt and piney hops. Light esters. Some grassiness.”

Flavor: “Grapefruit juice notes and some orange. Sweet but not too sweet. Some bitterness and grapefruit through the finish with slight warmth. Strong toasted character with orange/lemon/pineapple esters. Intensely bitter throughout with a long nish. Rich pine with woody undertones and some lemon and orange. The bitterness is well executed with no harsh edges. Nice body, too.”

Overall: “The blend of sweetness to hops flavor and bitterness works well. An intensely bitter DIPA with strong character, a nice nose and flavor, and well-balanced.”
